CASE ALLEGATIONS: Genesis Park Acquisition Corp. (“GPAC”) was a special purpose acquisition company – also known as a SPAC or blank-check company – formed for the purpose of effecting a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization, or similar business combination with one or more businesses. On September 2, 2021, GPAC combined with certain entities and was renamed Redwire. Redwire purports to offer mission critical space solutions and high reliability components for the next generation space economy, with valuable IP for solar power generation and in-space 3D printing and manufacturing. Prior to the merger, GPAC’s common shares traded on the NYSE under the symbol GNPK.
The Redwire class action lawsuit alleges that, throughout the Class Period, defendants made false and misleading statements and failed to disclose that: (i) there were accounting issues at one of Redwire’s subunits; (ii) as a result, there were additional material weaknesses in Redwire’s internal control over financial reporting; and (iii) consequently, defendants’ positive statements about Redwire’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
On November 10, 2021, Redwire announced that it would postpone the release of its third quarter earnings results. Redwire “was notified by an employee of potential accounting issues with a business subunit,” and Redwire’s Audit Committee was investigating the allegations. On this news, Redwire’s stock price fell by approximately 16%.
Then, on November 15, 2021, Redwire stated that it could not timely file its quarterly report for the period ended September 30, 2021. Redwire further disclosed that due to the pending investigation into the accounting issues at a business subunit, Redwire had “not been able to finalize its financial statements or its assessment of the effectiveness of its disclosure controls and procedures and any impact” on the report. On this news, Redwire’s stock price fell an additional 8.3%, further damaging investors.
